This is a Michigan recipe from the Wharfside Restaurant in Charlevoix. It can be served hot or cold, depending on the season. It is well worth the "fuss" of making, and the whole house smells wonderful while it is cooking. Makes an elegant brunch dish, or a special appetizer for a gourmet dinner. Don't forget the cinnamon toast! :o)
